Description

Course Format

Live in-person. This seated training is limited to 30 participants. *There is also an interactive live online option being offered at the same time. 


Description:

Clinical approaches to mental health issues can be improved with a foundational understanding of how neuroscience impacts mental, physical, emotional and behavioral health from conception forward. Participants can expect to gain insights into the human nervous system to better understand the how and why of challenging client behaviors and better match interventions to client needs. From a trauma-informed perspective, participants will explore how experience impacts human development and function.

Learning Objectives:

  1. State the names and functions of the primary components of the nervous system
  2. Recognize brain architecture, development and function
  3. Explain why the HPA axis is vital to client experiences of stressors
  4. Recognize common impacts of a dysregulated nervous system
  5. Compare interventions in light of nervous system dysregulation
  6. Interpret client challenges based on influence of neuroscience and human development.
